It is said that routinely cleaning your carpets can help them last longer. This means that you may have to replace your carpets less frequently, which can help you to save money. However, many people often wonder if this is true or if this is just a myth. Here is some information you should know about carpet cleaning and the lifespan of your carpets:

Does Carpet Cleaning Really Extend the Life of Your Carpets?

Carpet cleaning really does help to extend the life of your carpet. There are many variable that affect just how long a carpet will last, including the type of material that the carpet is made from, the amount of foot traffic the carpet is subjected to, how frequently the carpet is vacuumed, and the weather elements where you live. On average, those who regularly vacuum and have their carpets professionally cleaned have carpets that last about 25 percent longer than those who do not care for their carpets.

Why Does Carpet Cleaning Extend the Life of Your Carpets?

Professional carpet cleaning helps to remove dirt, dust, allergens, pollen, and other residue from the fibers of your carpet. Not only does this help to remove stains and buildup that can make the carpet look dirty and worn, but it helps the fibers to stand upright. This prevents your carpeting from looking rundown and matted. All of this combined helps your carpet to look great for years to come, helping to extend its life.

How Frequently Should You Have Your Carpets Clean to Extend Their Life?

It is recommended that you vacuum your carpets at least twice per week and have them professionally cleaned every six to 12 months to keep them looking their best and to help extend their lifespan. A professional carpet cleaning company can help you determine how frequently your carpets should be cleaned based on the material the carpets are made from, how dirty they get, their current condition, and the amount of foot traffic they are subjected to.
